The 2021 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan® started off with a bang! With 6 rings, indoor and outdoor, running throughout the day, it was a busy and exciting kickoff to the competition. Rain clouds couldn’t stop the action on Day 1. The first Champions of the show were named in the Third Level Open, Intermediate II Adult Amatuer, and Intermediate II Open!
At the end of the evening, all competitors gathered in the concourse of the Alltech Arena for the Competitor Welcome Party and Trade Fair Kick-Off, where they enjoyed delicious appetizers and beverages and listened to live Bluegrass music while shopping at the trade fair.
